Stopping Distances

I'm currntly studying for my Part 1 and need a little assistance.

I remember all those years ago when i was taking driving lessons my instructor gave me a little formula for calculating stopping distances but i can't for the life of me remember it, anyone know of one?

Re: Stopping Distances

This is the method I used.
20mph x 2 equals 40 ft (which is the overall stopping distance)
30mph x 2.5 = 75ft
40mph x 3 =  120ft
50mph x 3.5 = 175ft
60mph x 4 = 240ft
70mph x 4.5 = 315ft.
